* In ''TheDresdenFiles'', magic runs in families, usually matrilinearly. This is part of a villain's plot in [[spoiler:''White Night'', when some of the White Court start killing off female magical practitioners too weak for the White Council to notice, on the logic that this will interfere with future generations of wizards and they can afford to wait.]]

* While ''TigerAndBunny'''s WordOfGod says that NEXT abilities aren't genetic, it's certainly telling that [[spoiler:the two superheroes who were fathers (Wild Tiger and Mr. Legend) ended up having superpowered children (Kaede and Yuri Petrov).]]

** It seems like that if a Force-Sensitive is cloned, the clones will themselves be Force-Sensitive, as shown with [[OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] and [[TheThrawnTrilogy Joruus C'baoth]]. Though the clone's origins are mysterious enough that it is entirely possible Palpatine created and discarded dozens of C'baoth clones before getting one with the original's power. The clone also makes a [[EvilKnockoff clone of Luke]], but the Luke clone might not have been a Force user.

* Tenchi Masaki of ''TenchiMuyo'' is slightly over one quarter Juraian (his father happens to be a descendant of his maternal grandfather). Juraian's are an alien race with a tendency to develop Jedi-like powers with training (the royal family being stronger as well). He's also ''the'' most powerful "Juraian" in existence; capable of manifesting three "lighthawk wings", one of the most powerful defensive/offensive attacks known. A typical Juraian ''space ship'' is capable of manifesting only ''one''.

* The ''WildCATs'' are all [[HalfHumanHybrid descendants of]] the Kherubim and/or the Daemonites, super-powered alien races, and inherit their powers-- since both races have a vast array of potential powers, the humans usually only get a random fraction of them.

** OVA Tenchi is most likely disqualified from this as [[spoiler:he's the avatar of his dimension's ''god'']]. However, the one from ''TenchiUniverse'' more than qualifies as it's said that his own Juraian power was passed down from his mother, who was pretty damn powerful in her own right.

* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, as of ''[[Literature/StarTrekTheFall The Fall]]'', Benjamin Sisko is watching his daughter Rebecca very closely, ever alert for any possible sign that she's inherited powers or abilities from the wormhole aliens, due to Sisko himself being "part Prophet". The idea that she might have [[GiveHimANormalLife is disturbing to Sisko]], to say the least.

Added DiffLines:

* For the most part, Wizards in ''Literature/DiscWorld'' are created from the eighth son of an eighth son. However, every ''son'' of a Wizard is also a Wizard, and the eighth son of a Wizard is a ''Sourcerer''. Wizards are forbidden to marry because of this.

* The ComicBook/XMen had mixed up examples of 1 and 2; while Jean Grey (psionics) and ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} (EyeBeams) gave birth to two (or three, depending on how you count) of the most powerful psychics in existence, {{Magneto}} (with powers of magnetism) fathered a [[SuperSpeed speedster]], [[WindsOfDestinyChange a probability manipulator]] and (via {{Retcon}}) a magnetism user like him.

* AnneMcCaffrey's TalentSeries follows a large clan of Talents with PsychicPowers over numerous generations.
** It's indicated in ''Damia's Children'' that more powerful Talents have more powerful children -usually-not-always. Sometimes a powerful and a 'weak' talent can produce some truly remarkable results.
